If your ultimate goal is to wield a sharp blade safely, you need to train with a replica that approximates the size, feel and heft of a live blade, yet minimizes the possibility of causing injury to yourself or your training partner. The Trench Hawk Trainer training tool closely duplicates the feel and size of it’s original counterpart, while being considerably safer to train with! This concept was implemented by the ancient Romans, who used dull wooden swords to train their Gladiators and soldiers. Japanese Samurai used a wooden training sword that was called a Bokken. It’s an elegant solution to a vexing problem and effective enough to still be used today. The only problem is that a wooden sword can rot, crack, chip or splinter and eventually become useless. Cold Steel’s solution to these dilemmas was to design a synthetic substitute, low in price and impervious to the elements. The Cold Steel line of Training Weapons are made of heaviest grade polypropylene available and closely duplicate a real sword in length, size, weight and feel. While they’re not quite as rigid as wood, they have the winning advantages of being virtually unbreakable, remarkably stiff and cut resistant.
